Our New House

Goodness it's been quite some time since my last blog. I guess not having internet for a month and a half will do that to a blogger. Very thankful to have internet again from a company that has great customer service. It's amazing to me how so many companies make such a to do about their quality service and excellent customer service and for the most part it's quite the opposite. Anyway, enough about that ...

So much has changed in the last few months. For starters, we bought a house! That's right folks, we have a house. I have named our house Ethel, she's a good sturdy house but definitely needs some work. The house was built in 1985 but to most that I have shown a picture to they think it's quite a bit newer, which I assume is a good thing. It's a basic 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house with a living room, dining room, kitchen, den and a great back yard. Not to mention there's a park right on the other side of our fence. There's a street behind us and quite possibly the worlds best neighbors on the other side. As a matter of fact I am going to nanny for their kids during the school year. Karoline and I will pick them up with school and we will all hang out for a few hours a few days a week. I'm thrilled, this is a great arrangement for us at this point in time. I want to be able to be a stay at home mom until our kids are all in school but it is always nice to have a little extra income and somewhere to be. Not only that but Karoline is going to love getting to play with the kids!

Oh Karoline, sweet Karoline has turned into my Liney. Liney you might say, yes, whiny Liney. No, she's really not too whiny she is just finally getting a tooth! However, tonight I realized that the tooth appears to be coming in completely sideways. I sure hope it does not continue to come out that way and that it will turn to be more front facing. Either way though I'm sure it will still be adorable.

Not only does Karoline know sign language now she has also added quite a few words to her vocabulary. My favorite of which is, "juice." I'm impressed with her ability to say a "J." Heck, I'm impressed by everything she does.

There are quite a few things that we still need to do on our house but one thing is for sure, we are home. This is a great fit for us. I do worry that when we have another baby I will not like the distance from our room to the babies room but we will cross that bridge when we get there. For now I'm going to enjoy every minute. The base boards need to be washed, things need to be painted and cleaned, but I it is my goal to make sure that every day is a great day with my sweet girl. So, I have learned there are some things that have to wait, and wait they shall.

Alright, I'm starting to get dizzy, guess it's time to get some sleep. Until tomorrow ...
